The campaign for a November ballot initiative that seeks to raise most California income taxes to fund public schools is phasing out a TV ad that criticizes a rival tax initiative pushed by Gov. Jerry Brown.
In a 3-2 vote, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors Tuesday endorsed Proposition 30, a tax hike initiative championed by Gov. Jerry Brown.
The California State University Board of Trustees gave the final approval Wednesday on a plan that would raise tuition by 5 percent if voters reject Proposition 30 in November.
University of California leaders are planning to freeze tuition and endorse Gov. Jerry Brown’s tax initiative, but UC students could face a steep midyear tuition hike if voters reject the November ballot measure.
Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa on Monday declined to back any of the three income tax initiatives competing for space on the November ballot.
